Moorish mosques and French fancies

For a country smaller than the UK, Tunisia has a lot going on. There’s Middle Eastern promise in the form of mosques, hammams and medinas. And, thanks to the French, there are patisseries, belle époque buildings and boulevards, too. Then you’ve got the coastline – a never-ending ribbon of gold stretching the length of the country.

A trio of beach resorts

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to places to stay. Pretty Hammamet counts a long belt of sand, great fish restaurants and 3 golf courses among its best features. South of here is upmarket Port El Kantaoui. Here, you get 2 beaches and a marina packed with shops, cafés and restaurants. The Medieval town of Sousse is on an equal par. The French cuisine is something to write home about, and the souk warrants a spending spree.

Port El Kantaoui

Follow the coast south for about 50 miles and you’ll reach Port El Kantaoui. Aside from the two beaches, the place to see and be seen here is the upmarket marina.

Sousse

Then there’s Sousse. This Medieval town’s treasure-packed medina is a World Heritage site. And when you’ve had your fill of sightseeing, there’s a glut of French restaurants and patisseries to refuel in.

Up-and-coming Djerba

Head down country and you get the full-on desert island deal in Djerba. It’s a newbie on the holiday scene, but tipped for big things. It’s the long sandy beaches that the travel pack are most excited about, closely followed by the cobbled lanes of the Moorish capital, Houmt Souk.

Port el Kantaoui

Back in the Seventies, Port El Kantaoui on Tunisia’s east coast called in the planners. The brief was to build an upscale, cosmopolitan resort – and that’s exactly what they did. Style-wise, the place is all white buildings and cobbled streets with a swanky marina that takes centre stage. There are a few finishing touches, too – like a PGA golf course and a 2-sided beach.

Sousse

Set on the east coast of Tunisia, the city of Sousse has been around for nearly 3,000 years – so it’s an old hand at putting on the sights. If you like medinas, mosques and bustling souks, you’ve got them all here. And since the Sixties, this place has really geared up for tourists – so the resort now comes with lively nightlife and a knockout beach, too.

Hammamet

Back in the Sixties, this former fishing village got its first hotel – and since then it’s never looked back. In fact, this sophisticated resort on the northwest coast of Tunisia has even been compared to St Tropez. It certainly mixes up its old-world charm with beachfront cafés and discos – though the walled medina with its tangle of alleyways might just give it the edge.
